A Program for All Families in Lorain
The Rising Titans Collaborative provides programming and resources for ALL families in Lorain with children ages 0-5 through collaboration with Partners. Rising Titans also puts on various communiuty-wide events that focus on community engagement.
The Rising Titans Collaborative and it’s partners have the overarching goal of creating community wide kindergarten readiness throughout the city of Lorain. Our goal is to design a system that will help parents prepare their child for kindergarten from birth.
Telephone communication is being utilized with families. Virtual and no-contact programming may be available, as we continue to strategize with partners and families on the safest practices. New referrals are being accepted for Lorain families with children up to age 5. If you have questions, concerns, or needs please call the Rising Titans Collaborative Coordinator at 440-752-1823. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility!
In this Neighborhood News segment Rising Titans’ Lead Partner, Neighborhood Alliance, interviews the RT Kindergarten Readiness Collaborative Director, Katelyn Gonzalez.. Katelyn shares exactly what Rising Titans is and how things have changed during COVID-19 and what they are doing differently. This program is so much more than what you think with some pretty amazing community partners involved.
Due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Play Group was canceled and we transitioned to in-home literacy kits to Play Group families, which were dropped off to doorsteps.

PARENT SUCCESS STORY
I was referred and introduced to the Rising Titans Collaborative by my Help Me Grow Home Visitor at Neighborhood Alliance in April of 2019. By taking them to the Rising Titans Play Group that took place in Lorain libraries, my girls were able to learn how to interact with other children since I never had them in any daycares. There they also showed them different activities that helped them learn numbers, colors, and other things for preschool which strengthened their Kindergarten Readiness. The girls bridged over to their Preschool of choice, Lorain City Schools, and are thriving and doing well!
